MATRIX MIX: About 50%AUD/50%SBD (Both sources are about about equal in sound levels. Neither source was made higher or lower than the other. I find this ratio to rarely work, which is why these sources may have been ideal for matrixing.)
AKG CE-1 (4th row) > UHER CR-240 > Playback on Nak Dragon > Sony R700 DAT deck (sbm-on) - used only as A>D converter (44.1khz) > ZA2 > CDR (x2) > EAC > FLAC (tracking with CDWAV)
Taped by Kenny Mance. EAC to FLAC by cbass 2/25/07
SBD -> Cm -> Dat -> Samplitude 2496 v6.0 -> CD -> EAC -> SHN
Transfers all done by Charlie Miller
Matrix by Hunter Seamons using Final Cut Pro (SHN & FLAC>AIFF>Final Cut>WAV>FLAC)
7/25/07 Remastered 06/01/08
1) The AUD speed was increased on average by 1% to match the soundboard.
2) There are occasional gaps in both the AUD and SBD, so there will be instances where only one source is playing. The SBD has more cuts in it, particularly between songs.
3) The Low Gain of the SBD was increased by 3 dB.
4) The transition between disc 2 and 3 is seamless.
5) For mysterious purposes only, an echo effect was added to the 30 second bit of noodling before I Need a Miracle.
6) The results of this matrix are pretty darn good - enjoy this amazing Iowa Dead!
Remastering Notes (06/01/08):
1) Portions of all songs were re-synced, except On the Road Again, Beat It On Down The Line, I Need A Miracle, and Johnny B. Goode. Big, BIG upgrade.
2) The AUD patch in the AUD source during Sugar Magnolia was removed.
having a new love affair with some of the matrix recordings popping up on the archive - thanks to everyone responsible for keeping this music very much alive

Listen to this show..Now!
I have a much longer review on the other SB source, this show is one of the best of the best.The entire band is just so on and Jerry is so extremly on. I mean he hits every note he thinks of and his phasing is incredible. It is a remarkable performance. The first set is almost 80 minutes long and has plenty of upbeat tunes and the opener is killer as is the set closer, which is smokin'!
Set two is huge with a extended China>Rider which sits up with the best of the modern versions. It features one of the best fast tempo Eyes out there. The rest of the show is high caliber with an rollicking Aiko out of space to set the pace to the finish line. The set ending Sugar Magnolia is rockin, with Phil dropping uge bombs, is followed by a wonderful double encore.
The entire band clearly enjoys this magical night of music.
This matrix may be one of the best on the Archive, you feel like you are sitting, or rather dancing, right in front of the sound board.

Your remarks really make me happy that I went back and re-synced songs like Roses on this matrix. Funny how that has the "technical difficulties" in the the channels, but it still sounds great. Ahh, my first (revised) matrix is still in my top 5 - more like top 3 - in terms of sound. You can see why the sound on this only compelled me to do more of these little ditties.

Well, stunning ...
Dear Mr. Seamons (and anyone else who had a hand in the eventual finished product):
This is a terrific offering. This rendition and clear recording of "Roses" is OUTSTANDING! The matrix blending of board and audience gives this recording a clarity and depth which affords the listener an almost "surround sound" feel to this show.
I will suggest to anyone who wants to experience the full effect to put in the earbuds and listen to "Roses" just once. It is splendid ... Jerry's voice is cool, clear and crisp ... as well as the tightness of the harmonies rendered on this version ... quite possibly as gorgeous a capturing of this tune as I've ever heard from a live, non-commercial product.
I am a huge fan of this era "Roses"... the tempo, the "cowboy/country" groove ... WOW! Thanks so much for posting, Hunter. Bravo, as always!
